[13] Dictionary Insert in alphabetical order: Chief Commissioner means the Chief Commissioner of State Revenue. Explanatory note Item [10] of the proposed amendments to the Mining Act 1992 provides that royalties payable under that Act are taxes for the purposes of the Taxation Administration Act Accordingly, royalties will be assessed and recoverable by the Chief Commissioner of State Revenue (the Chief Commissioner) under that Act. The amendment requires the Minister to provide the Chief Commissioner with any information necessary to enable the Chief Commissioner to exercise his or her functions with respect to royalties. The Minister is given power to certify certain decisions made under the Act that are relevant to the calculation of royalty. The amendment also removes a provision that makes royalty a debt recoverable in a court of competent jurisdiction. The provision is redundant because the Taxation Administration Act 1996 provides that all taxes are recoverable by the Chief Commissioner as a debt in a court of competent jurisdiction. Item [1] is a consequential amendment. At present, royalties are payable to the Minister. The amendment makes it clear that royalties are payable to the Crown. Item [10] also makes it clear that the disclosure of royalty information by the Minister remains subject to the Mining Act 1992, and not the Taxation Administration Act Item [11] is a consequential amendment. Item [5] enables the Chief Commissioner to pay part of the royalty collected in respect of privately owned minerals to the Minister, so as to enable the Minister to exercise his or her functions with respect to the payment of royalties to owners of privately owned minerals. Item [8] requires royalty returns to be lodged with the Chief Commissioner (instead of the Minister). The Taxation Administration Act 1996 provides for the form in which returns must be provided. The Chief Commissioner is to provide a copy of the returns to the Minister. The amendments continue to permit the regulations to prescribe mandatory information to be included in returns. The Chief Commissioner may also require additional information. The amendment removes a provision that enables the Minister to approve special return arrangements, as the Chief Commissioner can do that Page 12

14 under the Taxation Administration Act Item [8] also removes a provision that makes it an offence to fail to furnish a return, or to include false or misleading information in a return, as to do so will be an offence under existing provisions of the Taxation Administration Act 1996 (sections 55 and 57). Items [2] [4] are consequential amendments to ensure that the obligation to lodge a royalty return applies not only to holders of a mining lease but to other authorisation holders who are liable to pay royalty under the Act. Item [9] makes it clear that a tax default for the purposes of the Taxation Administration Act 1996 occurs if royalty is not paid when it becomes due and payable. The amendment also removes a provision that enables the Minister to impose interest for late payment of royalty. The Taxation Administration Act 1996 already permits the Chief Commissioner to impose interest and other penalties for late payment of taxes, and those provisions will now apply to royalties. Items [6] and [7] require the Chief Commissioner to remit interest and penalty tax if the Minister waives payment of royalty or part of royalty. Item [12] provides for transitional matters. Item [13] inserts a definition of Chief Commissioner in the Dictionary. 4.2 Mining Regulation 2010 [1] Clause 13 Activities taken not to be prospecting or mining Omit to the Minister from clause 13 (5).
